Carla Baratta as Adelita | Mayans MC | FX

Mayans M.C.

Carla Baratta stars as “Adelita,” whose deal with the devil pays dividends for aide to local Mexican communities. Her resourceful determination is put further to the test as her relationships with the club and cartel grow.

Venezuelan actress on the rise, Baratta is quickly becoming known for the powerful, multidimensional female characters she brings life to on screen. In 2018, she made her U.S. television debut on Mayans M.C.

Additional credits for Baratta include the lead role in the series Prueba de Fe (Proof of Faith), in which she played the young Mother Teresa and communicated throughout the series in sign language. Baratta has also starred in the pilot Sol (Sun) for Venevision network, Escándalos (Scandals) and the short La Empanada Perfecta (The Perfect Empanada).

Born and raised in Venezuela to first-generation Italians, Baratta fell in love with acting at just 11 years old, participating in her local community theater group. While she juggled her school work and theater productions, Baratta also continued to practice her love for painting, a passion project that would eventually lead her to sell her artwork worldwide. At 17 she had the opportunity to participate in the New York Film Academy-Los Angeles. As the summer came to an end, Baratta returned to Venezuela to study architecture before she decided to pursue a full-time career in acting. Although Baratta loved studying the planning and design that encompassed architecture, she often traveled to Caracas (one of the largest cities in Venezuela) to further hone her craft in acting. She eventually booked a lead role in an international web series entitled Bleep, (broadcast by the mobile phone company Digital GSM in Venezuela) which she filmed during her summer vacation from school.

Before making the move to Los Angeles, Baratta lived and worked as an architect and painter in Barcelona, Malaysia and Caracas. When she isn't on set you can find Baratta painting or catching a play at a local theater. She continues to work as an artist, her paintings often depicting people from all walks of life. Her art is currently displayed in various locations in Los Angeles and abroad in Venezuela.
